The Grey Fox's range includes most of North America. I caught this particular fox by accident, while trying to trap raccoons. I didn't know that fox liked to eat marshmallows so much! As you can see, it's a scrawny little animal with ragged, mangy fur. I don't suspect a fox living in Orlando in June would like much of a thick coat.
I usually do not specialize in canine control, though there are many trappers throughout the country who do perform nuisance fox control. These fox trappers will eliminate any troublesome foxes that you have on your property. The fox is usually a shy and cautious animal, and I've never known them to be any sort of problem here in the Orlando area. In fact, they're rather rare.
Also rare are coyotes, although they are becoming increasinly common in urban areas, even Orlando. If you think you are dealing with a coyote instead of a fox, read my coyote trapping tips page.
